The volume of emerging technology is both awe-inspiring and overwhelming. As new technology makes its way into devices, tools and factories, it disrupts our old paradigm of thinking. Many times these new disruptive technologies create anxiety for the individuals who have been tasked with implementing them into their organization because these technologies are emerging at a faster rate than their ability to adapt them. Often this anxiety can quickly lead to paralyses with regards to executing their corporate automation strategy. Relax, we are here to help; we deal with automation every day so you don’t have to!
Olympus Controls is also very risk adverse; however, we spend 100% of our time selecting, designing, programming, and commissioning automation products so we contribute a significant amount of proven design methodologies to our client partners. Our job is to make them look good and to be proud of the fact that they engaged our team to help their company implement an efficient and effective automation strategy.
Our Risk Mitigation Strategy kicks in at the very beginning of any project. Our team employs both SolidWorks design software and simulation software to ensure that we will be able to achieve the performance specifications defined by our clients’ scope of work. This up-front engineering investment ensures that our proposed solution will meet our clients’ expectations right from the start.
Our Risk Mitigation Strategy is focused around process. Everything we do has a process to it, with the goal of eliminating risks and unknowns out of the solution. Every project goes through a “toll-gate” process where the person leading the project confirms that the team has successfully completed the previous phase before passing the tollgate and moving to the next phase.
Our team utalizes a process that allows us to identify risk management considerations, assess the severity and consequences of a given risk and its overall threat to your project, and explore options and trade-offs for managing the risk. A successful Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) audit helps our team to identify potential failure modes based on past experience with similar products or processes. This enables us to proactively design those failures out of the system with minimum effort, thereby reducing development time and costs.We don’t want to get involved with any crazy science experiments with no definitive end in sight, so we advise our clients how to mitigate their risks by employing our proven design strategies.
